Why I hate scales
I constantly see women obsessing over the scales….I just wanted to give a different way to keep track of progress. Everyone is different, of course, but for me personally this is my experience.
I’m 5’2″. Yeah, I’m short 😛 If I don’t workout or eat well, I weigh 110 or so. My waist is 26 inches around, I’m a size 5 and I do not look or feel my most fit/toned. However, if I start up my pilates & pole dance/fitness regularly and eat a CLEAN diet of 1200 calories (or more) per day, this changes. I actually GAIN weight from the muscle I am building–I weigh around 113-116…but my inches go DOWN. My waist is 24 inches & I’m a size 3. So for me, I couldn’t care less about the numbers on the scale!
I measure myself once a month, maybe twice. I do both pilates & pole at home, never stepped foot in a gym! I hate Cardio, but I do it anyway…HIIT, maybe 3-4 times a week.
This has been my experience for 2 1/2 years. I look my best with a 24 inch waist, but I weigh more by 3-6 lbs. Crazy, but its how my body works.
Here is my challenge to you who are frustrated with the scale: ditch it for a week or two. Get a tape measure. Do some pilates. (I recommend Cassey on YouTube, search for “POP PILATES”). watch your size shrink! Isn’t that what we all want, to be smaller & toned? That is always measured in INCHES, not always in pounds. Pilates + Cardio will easily accomplish this. Ditch the scale & try it!!!
